Well, some schools will be starting later and some will start earlier and some won't change at all. With a savings of over 4 million dollars.

Langley doesn't change though. I'm sure someone will bitch about that.

You mean Janie's segregated public high school doesn't get preferential treatment on something. Who'd a thunk that?

How would you change Langley's boundaries? It's in the richest part of the county. You could make Langley smaller, and send some of its students to Herndon or South Lakes, but Langley would still be almost entirely White and Asian.

Shift some of McLean and Marshall to Langley & Forestville & Great Falls to Herndon. You could even send Forest Edge to Langley.

Better yet, solve the overcrowding at Annandale HS by making a big ripple that starts at Annandale HS and goes through Falls Church HS, Stuart HS, Marshall HS, and McLean HS, dumping a big load of people into Langley at the end. You could get rid of the McLean attendance islands in the process.

Rich people are going to continue to be white and Asian.

Haha. Janie Strauss should have Cooper and Langley share busses from anything that passes Cooper. And no AP fees at Langley, Oakton ? AP schools are NOT the lowest socio economic group in FCPS. My actual FX tax payment will be higher than last year so how many Langley AP exams am I footing? And TJ? And ..............?

That makes Herndon's demographics more affluent, and McLean and Marshall's demographics less affluent, while changing Langley's demographics hardly at all (putting aside your Forest Edge suggestion). Might save a few bucks in transportation costs at most.

Call Dean Tistadt (the guy whose wife got ticked at the kid for calling on his cell phone during school hours) and let him know how you feel.
